Details: Product Description She rose to prominence as one of the Team GB women s hockey team that made history by winning Olympic gold in Rio in 2016. But Sam Quek s path to glory was far from easy. Overcoming adversity from a young age, she dreamed of competing for her country in the Olympic arena yet saw those dreams nearly crushed when she narrowly missed out on selection for Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012. Hitting rock bottom and contemplating quitting the sport she loved, she battled back to defy the odds and become part of a success story that captivated millions of TV viewers who were on the edge of their seats as Great Britain overcame arch rivals Netherlands in a thrilling final. Since then Sam has faced her fears on I m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here and has branched out from hockey, proving herself to be a popular and authoritative voice on a range of sports from men and women's football to NFL. Outspoken, courageous and funny, Sam gives readers a unique insight into what it takes to become an elite sportsperson as she charts her remarkable journey from humble beginnings in Liverpool to Olympic gold. About the Author Sam was born in West Derby, Liverpool on October 18, 1988. At aged six she moved across the River Mersey to the Wirral where she attended Birkenhead High School. Sam won her first international cap for Great Britain at the age of 18 while studying at Leeds Metropolitan University. Ten years later at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, she won a gold medal as part of Team GB s most successful women s hockey team ever. The hockey star is also a loyal supporter of Liverpool F.C. and now regularly presents a variety of sport on television.
